to give gold." of course, there is no function for gold quite like an indian wedding. "marriage season, the parents give the kids a lot of gold jewelry." > > is that when you see the most action? "absolutely." on this day, the action came from a family shopping for their future daughter-in-law. "they bought a mongol sutra with earings, a necklace with earrings and another chain. turns out to be about 216,000 indian rupees." at today's exchange rate, that buy translates to more than $4,000 in gold. and while not every indian can afford that kind of outlay, all families will need to buy some gold when their children get married. "if from the lady's side they don't come up with the gold, there's going to be a problem. so they have to buy a lot of gold. they don't have a choice." > > everyone? "everyone. believe me everyone." more than just a gift, gold is valued as a safe investment, and for its liquidity. "you have gold, you can sell it into the marketplace and grab the money. it's so easy." the new shipping complex behind me in the southern city of kochin represents the booming economy.
